Wicked and wild night here weather wise. Rained, snowed, iced, rained, snowed, iced then the winds came with a vengenance. About midnight we woke up to the sound of water running- my first sleepy thought was that the creek had finally made it to our door! I got up to look outside and my feet went "slosh...slosh..." There was water coming under our bedroom door! I didn't turn on the light, but I did grab a flashlight and opened up into the new addition, and a water pipe had burst from the washing machine! There was water everywhere. Not much to do about it either in 12 degrees and the new addition still partially exposed to the weather. So we crawled back in bed. This morning, the water has frozen over forming an ice pond, and Mike is out there now very carefully looking for the section of pipe that burst. This is totally insane, this weather! Totally freakin insane! Thank God last night I had the foresight to drop a couple of bails of hay for the horses. I couldn't get out there to them right now unless I strapped on ice skates!
